  1. When one looks at global issues that have countries experiencing war times, some lasting generations, we are supposedly a peaceful nation.

    Keeping the peace is something we want to be proud of for generations to come. I always get a foul taste in the mouth watching our ‘rulers’ enjoy peace in their stately homes while some citizens experience uncomfortably confrontational moments for their right to support whomever they wish to support.

    Load shedding or not, wearing the uniform and holding that office needs to mean more than it currently does. Let’s cherish real peace for all and introduce tolerance over paranoia. It’s not a tall order. It is right and our right. My two cents.

    • The police commissioner like many other Zambians will not have heard of the UPND incident in TV because ZNBC has been instructed not to report on any UPND activities that will tarnish PFs name.

      There is however in this modern era there are numerous other sources such as online media where this is captured, so that commissioner should wake up and not give excuses about load shedding. She should be fired (probably wishful thinking because Ka Lungu tolerates mediocre performance as long as it benefits him )

    • @Ndobo hhhheeehh? Missing Kabimba? I don’t miss him, he is a lucky guy he was fired before I arrested him. Somehow I also prefer Kabimba, during there was no loadshredding, and Edgar controlled his bakapokola as minister of bar-affairs.

  2. This is no sense coming from the highest office how can PRO issue when a report is not given to her so you are just wasting tax payers money?
    These PF thugs and you police you are making PF very unpopular.
    I voted for you but now forget my vote as we are peaceful Zambians we can not allow this

  3. So what do you want her to say? Tell a lie that PF cadres attacked UPMD offices? Tell you only that which you want to hear even if she has not received a report on the matter from her subordinates?
    The report mentions “suspected PF cadres” and not PF cadres, just as we have heard other reports which mention “suspected UPMD cadre”. E.g. The attack on Inonge Wina’s residence in Mongu by “suspected UPMD cadres” although this has now been confirmed and the “suspects” arrested and appearing in court.

    • After seeing your as expected dull comments on a story that has actual video footage of MMD being tear gassed, I can safely say you are an !diot. 🙂 And I can also tell that you know that there will be no PF after 2016 and probably that is where you get your monthly five pence from. Some advice, if your only skill is bootlicking the party in power, have some foresight and start kissing someone’s butt in the UPND because they are taking over. But don;t be too overzealous the way dull non tactical people like you usually are. Take your time. Moron.

  5. The PRO can’t know something while the commissioner doesn’t. It ought to be the other way round unless these people don’t know about the code for the uniformed forces

  6. The commissioner doesn’t rely on TV and the national electric grid to have information on police operations. She should have HF radio communication encrypted phones and the likes. Her excuse is very lame

    • @jkalusa

      Why bring Lord Jesus in your sectarian pursuit? God is above your little ambition and belly issues.

      We believe God for redemption of mankind and eschew the vain use of His Name!!

      ECL may have given you corrupt contracts but we believe God desires more for this nation where corruption will end, peace and justice abound , food provided to all and our children are given hope for tomorrow , the Kwacha improves to pre Sata days (K4), inflation goes back to single digits and retirement age returns to 55 years to unlock employment for young people churned from universities daily!!

  8. …it just looks awkward for a police officers especially her rank to bluntly publicly lie….that office is on duty 24/7….since when did load shedding affect mobile network….she has a fully paid for cell phone….her deputy is always in touch with her when such incidence occur….unless they are trivialising the incident….rubbish

  9. Maybe she is not fit to be in her position. She is supposed to know to minor notice details what is going on in her province. What are her detectives on the ground doing?
